    What to Expect

    Come enjoy a taiko drumming performance and workshop at Sairi Yashiki! Sairi Yashiki is an historical estate with 7 warehouses filled with exhibitions of clothes and works of art from the late 1800s, as well as 2 former residences. At this beautiful historical spot, you will be treated to an energetic taiko drumming performance, followed by a lesson where you can learn how to beat the traditional taiko drum. After learning a simple song, we will give you a "happi" coat to wear and you can perform the song on Sairi Yashiki's outdoor stage. We will record you on your phone/camera so that you can take this memory home with you.

    I amazed just after entering the building. It was so beautiful. I thought that playing the drum is difficult because I never tried before. But our guide made it much easier. They were so helpful, fun, and kind. I really like this tour.
